Want to improve your Scratch skills? Or even learn how to use Scratch? TESIC is running Getting Unstuck, a 20 day Scratch Challenge! Starting May 1st a new challenge will be emailed to participants each weekday. Create something share it, and look at what other participants have made and comment on it!
There is a lot to learn. You can increase your own proficiency with Scratch, learn how to use blocks you haven't seen before, see what other people have made, and talk to them about how they use it within their teaching practice. There will be experienced Scratch users from TESIC who will be able to assist you as you work your way through the challenges too.
